sangwani ( Subba Rao 1957)  ( Dusmetia  ).

Type. INPC

Distribution. E (Orange)

Host/habitat. Antonina graminis 

Remarks. This species was originally imported from India in 1959 and established in Texas in a biological control program against Antonina graminis  , and specimens from that program were released in Imperial County ( Bartlett 1978 c). Noyes (2000), referring to Bartlett (1978 c), stated this species was also successfully used in California; however Bartlett (1978 c: 139) reported only that a small number of the species had been released in California in 1968, and its success had not yet been assessed. However, there is a specimen ( UCRC) collected from Orange County in 1992, indicating that the species is at least established here.
